Woodland Place-setting Box

Woodland box 
I want to thank all of you for putting up with all my woodland posts. I had a lot of fun with this theme, but this is my last idea to share. I will say there was still soooooo many ideas I did not get to, such as making felt pillows that looked like a slice of wood, pinecone and pom-pom garland, wood tags and ornaments, 4 foot frosted branches stuck in my Christmas tree and so much more. I think I needed Martha's team to help me or AA for Christmas decorating !!!

This last idea is a woodland box that is both a place-setting card and a gift. I always love to have a little gift for everyone at Christmas dinner. In past years I have had figgy pudding box, pastel paper stockings and last year, little fabric trees. What I love about these is every year it reminds us of a past years. I always put a popper and chocolate with them.  I am sooo over-the-moon with these boxes. Just to let you know I got the deer and tree from Sweet Treat Supplies and I made the mushrooms from fimo clay.

After a month of posting just about every day (I had a lot to share didn't I) I am going to take a week off, enjoy Christmas, recoup, refresh, plan next years theme  ;-) I wish each of you dear readers (because you are all dear friends to me) a blessed Christmas. I know this is a hard time for some of you, a bittersweet time. I hope there will be more sweetness then bitter for you this Christmas. 

Merry Christmas each and every one of you. I wish we could all celebrate together (because you all know how I want to feed all of you). Eat something yummy and think of me xooxoxox

That figgy pudding box is so sweet Clarice! Love the little toadstool. It reminds me of the fairy houses that are all over Monhegan Island in Maine. You would love it.
Glad you liked the felted pillow- let me know if you need the silhouette.
Happy New Year! What's on the menu???


Love these...

This little box is my favorite of all the Christmas decorations that I've seen anywhere this year, Clarice. It's so charming and captures your theme perfectly. You'll have put a smile on the face of each of your guests, I'm sure.

I've loved seeing your Christmas this year. Thank you for sharing it.

Merry Christmas and lots of love, to you, and to your lovely family.

I'm all for being fed by you LOL! You have done such a wonderful job with your theme. You could do a whole book on it! I think your woodland box is just adorable! I love the deer and the little mushrooms you made.

Have a wonderful week off ((I'm enjoying mine) and I hope your family has a wonderful Christmas!



Dear Clarice,

Your woodland place setting box is so lovely! Your table will look fabulous! Your home is so charming, and you have decorated it beautifully! Very Storybook Woods, and oh so vintage looking! I hope you and your family have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!!!
Love, Paula

Wow... do I love the dish with the red and white border!! Will you share the name on the back of the plate?? Your mushrooms are so sweet!! So clever of you to use Fimo!!


Clarice...I have thoroughly enjoyed these woodland posts and could never tire of them!! I would have loved to have seen your other "not quite gotten to" projects. I was going to make a pinecone garland and did, just put them too close together and ran out of pinecones. Then I got more and got lazy!! Hahaha!!
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!


Merry Christmas to you and yours, as well, Clarice! I hope you all have a lovely, lovely day! By the way, those plates are fantastic! I absolutely adore the design. :) Theresa


Oh, I love that, it is too cute…
What a beautiful table setting…

Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful woodland ideas with us…

Merry Christmas!



Oh my, don't think it's been a burden for anyone to "put up with" your woodland posts! I think most of us were hanging out with hot tea waiting for the next one. I love the place setting. And that box is sooo adorable. I want to do more things like that in the future. You have given me so many beautiful ideas.

Holiday Hugs,
